People Share The Most Hurtful Thing A Medical Professional Ever Said To Them



Not A Funny Joke, Doctor

“My firstborn kid was born early, and we had to spend some time in the NICU. The first day, a pediatric geneticist came over to our bed and said that he suspected that she had Trisomy-21 (Downs Syndrome). He ordered up a full panel to be done.

Two days later, the results come back and it is verified that she doesn’t have Downs. My wife and I, who were terrified of everything at this point, stared at him, and my wife asks, “Why did you think she had Down’s syndrome?”

He looks at her and says, ‘Well, I looked at your husband, and it seemed obvious.’

I know he was trying to make a joke, but Jesus Christ, man.”
